How To Install Kodi 17.6 Krypton on the New Updated Fire TV Stick Nove
Installing the new Kodi 17.6 to a Fire TV Stick is not difficult and does not require a computer or any other device.
 
A computer can be used if the main install method does not work for your Fire TV version such as the new Fire TV 4K.
 
The first method does not require a computer only an Amazon account to get a free App called Downloader. A free trial account can be used if needed.
 
The Downloader App is used to go to the Kodi Download page and get the necessary install file.
 
There have been a few updates that have stopped some previous methods from working with the Downloader App method still working and the most widely used.
 
The second method uses an App called File Commander which allows a computer to copy files to a Fire TV.
 
How to use both methods are shown below along with the steps and screenshots. A video is also below each method for a visual walk through if needed.
 
Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs, along with an easy to use Fire TV Stick app.

    Hi..your instructions were great and I downloaded Kodi. When I tried to download and install Exodus, I got the message there was a connectivity problem. I added it, but no zip file of course. I just got the Fire stick, could Exodus be blocked? I tried it 2x and know I had the right URL Thanks

    I did all the steps but when I click on Kodi I get a message saying “Your library is currently empty. In order to populate it with your personal media, enter “Files” section, add a media source and configure it. After the source has been added and indexed you will be able to browse your library.
    Do I need to do some other steps to be able to watch movies?

    PLEASE HELP both on my Fire TV and my Fire Sticks the new ones they just came today which is May 18th 2017 I can download the ES File Explorer then I can download Kodi but once I open Kodi it brings up all of the options such as shown in the picture but each of the icons the windows Linux Mac OS Android all of those things have nothing underneath them therefore I cannot go to the ARM. Do you know how to fix this issue or what is going on. It’s all that it’s doing it with both my Fire TV as well as the new Fire Sticks. Thank you for your help in advance period once I can get to the ARM I can follow the directions from there but I can’t even see those options 🙁

        Hi
        I had the same issue.
        I downloaded the file with my laptop. Then i shared the directory with the files. After this you go to ES and connect to the laptopshare. Now you can choose the file and install it.

    I had tried four other jailbreak instructions and all four had different steps. I was getting tired and ready to give up when I came across this one , I figured I would give it a try . The instructions were very clear , she spoke slow enough that you did not have to back the video up every two seconds. I followed it step by step and every one was right on the money. Try this one and you will not be sorry.

    I made it to step 12, but there are only the various icons (linux, apple, android, etc) but no visible links below each icon to highlight or select?? It looks slightly different than the screen shot, but basically the same. Am I in the wrong place? Should I try and reload kodi? And if I ever see links below the icons am I suppose to choose the android ARM?

    I got as far as installing Kodi. Then it gives me the option to open. When I go to open it shows the new Kodi screen, then it says “clearing cache” then “preparing first run” then it goes back to the downloader.

    Many thanks to the provider of the walkthrough tutorials. I have messing around with upgrades and builds since Feb 2017. I don’t know how to code but it sounds challenging. Anyway to those who have problems with Kodi …. Go back and start over.😯

    Has ANYONE figured out why 17.1 won’t load after being installed after this new Amazon update? I was running 17.1 beta, then the Amazon update came last night so I updated to the stable version of 17.1 but now my firestick won’t start Kodi…i got the “initial load” message but then it goes to a black screen. I’d really rather NOT delete and reinstall…i had a really nice customized install of Titan and I don’t want to have to redo it all…even with the Titan backups I’ve saved.

    Anyone figure this out yet?
